Making Cute Bento Sandwiches

I’m making this Bento Sandwich for my elementary school student. I recalled her school results were terrible when I first taught her, but her grades have improved tremendously since. I promised to make her something nice if she’s obedient & does her homework diligently, so this is it!

Recipe Featured @ OMY-食天堂Eat as DIY 好主意!

I like to pamper my students, both kids & adults. Even grown-ups need motivation too. I believe in bonding with my students, that’s why I always like to make nice food for them. Sometimes, they’re my “guinea pigs” for my cooking experiments too. LOL!
I love making Bento as it brings back the good-old-days of preparing Bento, making cute food when my son was younger.

Winner of Breakfast Ideas @ Mad About Kids!

These Bento Sandwiches here are fuss-free & ready in no time. I hope you’ll enjoy making them for your kids as much as I do.

2 slices of Bread
1 slice of Cheese
1 slice of Ham
1 Hard-boiled Egg
½ Plum
1 raisin (cut in half)
1 tbsp Butter
½ tsp Jam

  1. Using your fave moulds, cut out shapes from bread, cheese & ham.
  2. Spread butter on bread. & layer bread to make sandwich. Using raisins, add eyes to fish & swallow. I’d added cheese on top of the heart & jam to tulip.
  3. To make flower plum, cut it criss-cross & gently bend the fruit outwards.
  4. Using an egg mould, insert a hard-boiled egg & leave it closed for 5 mins for shape to form. Have fun!
